I do not recognize a single artist. Maybe Sweet Crude? I think they are a New Orleans thing.
Tool, Miley Cyrus, Bassnectar, The 1975, Run The Jewels, Primus, Turkuaz. Looks good but conflicts will decrease the value of these names.
Lizzo, Oysterhead, Tenacious D, Isbell, King Gizz, Dababy. Looks great but conflicts will decrease the value of these names.
I'm skeptical of Superjams but one led by Sylvan Esso (kudos to whoever had the scoop on that) sounds interesting.
Kevin Gates, Denzel Curry, J.I.D., Mandolin Orange, Billy Strings, YAEJI (here is your one non-bass electronic artist)
Tame Impala, Lana Del Rey, Vampire Weekend, Young Thug (hell yes), Flogging Molly, Greensky Bluegrass, Orville Peck, Femi Kuti, Bill Frisell (wow, another one out of nowhere).
Overall, a lot of acts I'd be excited to see. I like all three headliners, a rarity at any festival. Vampire Weekend, one of my favorite bands. Jason Isbell, one of my favorite artists but someone I have the chance to see fairly frequently. Possibly my best chance to see Oysterhead. Miley Cyrus, possibly my only chance to see Wrecking Ball performed live. Primus, one of my favorite bands. Young Thug, one of my favorite hip-hop artists. Femi Kuti/Bill Frissel give some world music and weird jazz music which is nice to see. A smattering of decent jammy stuff which is cool.
Hate to repeat the Festive Owl but it's a Bonnaroo lineup. Musically diverse, some silly stuff, a variety of genres. Feels on-brand to me which is a good thing.
There is a lot to like, but given how top-heavy it is for my tastes there will be super painful conflicts that could cut the amount of acts I want to see in half or worse. Not being critical, we've all wanted to see better and more well rounded midcard acts, which we have, but it's a double edged sword.
I'll have to at least wait and see what Phish is up to, but I'd really like to see a schedule before I commit.
I do wonder whether SE’s Superjam will actually be a traditional Superjam, or if it’ll basically just be like the rest of their With shows - aka full band versions of mostly just their own songs with additional guests. In that case it’d be closer to Bon Iver set II than what we usually see.
I’m not letting myself get properly excited about this because I’m not nearly close to 100% on being able to go, but I’ve been wanting to see Young Thug for so damn long lol. Though, with my luck, they’ll put him up against VW or something else I also want to see.
I love it. It’s random and awesome. I get some shit I’m real stoked for and some random shit like Lana,Miley and Lizzo that I wouldn’t pay solo ticket prices for but will gladly check em out at Bonnaroo
Her DJ sets with live vocals are pretty sweet. But her more live show with her hopping around and singing with the presumably pre-recorded backing track playing leaves a bit to be desired. I'm curious if her show evolves this year.
